How to Use and Store Safari Password Suggestions

If you use Google Chrome on your computer, you’re probably familiar with a browser's ability to save your password for login websites. But did you know that Safari on iOS has the ability to suggest passwords for you? And Safari will then store the secure password for later use. This is an awesome feature, because not only does Safari create a far more secure password than your dog’s name plus your birthday, but it stores the password so you don’t need to remember it too. Here’s how to get a Safari password suggestion.

Open a website you want to create a new account with. For our example, we’ll use the Insider subscription for iPhone Life. Tap Sign-up on whichever website you’re creating an account for. When you tap to fill in the Password field, you’ll see Suggest Password. Select that.


A message will pop up with your Suggested Password. The message lets you know that the password will be saved in your iCloud Keychain, making it available for AutoFill across all of your devices. Tap Use Suggested Password. It will automatically fill in and remember your password for that website from there on out.
